    I get the familiar choice with the classic menu but the search boxes at folder tops and the bottom ofr the Vista menu don't work very well.

    When I go to the help and support it tells me to click teh search folder (see below)

    When I click on it in Help I get there, but how can I set up a shortcut or menu item. I've tried everything I can think of.

    Any help from ANYONE whose has figured this out would be greatly appreciated.
    Dell support is worse than clueless, they don't even know what I'm asking.

    The Search folder is a good choice when:

    You don't know where a file or folder is located.

    You want the search results to include files from more than one folder, such as Pictures and Music.

    You want to search by using more than a single file name or file property.

    By default, this search is based on a set of locations called Indexed Locations. This includes all of the folders in your personal folder (which includes Documents, Pictures, Music, Desktop, and other common locations), e‑mail, and offline files. If you commonly store files in different locations, you can add those locations to Indexed Locations. For more information, see Improve Windows searches using the index: frequently asked questions.

    Click to open Search.

    Type a word or part of a word in the Search box.

    As you type, files from a variety of locations on your computer will appear that match your text.
